This past week is been extremely busy into work side infact I worked always except on tuesday night that I used to have my “weekly” date with my friends, I went with a friend of mine into a nice local and we had good dinner with our girl talks and lot of laughs!!!

I was looking for a couple of gifts and I saw so many shops with low prices that I am been seriously temted to buy something, but apart my weekly/monthly readings and fuel for week end I didn't spend more than I planned. That is good. I resisted to impulsive shopping and temptation, plus I planned readings for the next two months, I still have many books bought in summer 2014 that are still untouched.

I worked in the cafe during week end ( I'm grateful about this work because also if I have almost all week end from September till June busy with it, it permits me to don't touch savings) but with snow many athletes didn't came so I had free sunday afternoon that I used for grocery shopping, is very nice when you go into grocery shop a little bit later lunch and shop is almost empty, you can walk slow and think, research well every product, while in the mornings or on saturday afternoons there is always a mass of people... I don't like a lot mass!!!

This past week I found time to reply to a couple of freind's emails and I must till reply to a letter from a pen pal from Portugal...this week I need find time and reply to her, plus I must to create other stationary set by diy (uaing decoupage draws)

I am planning a week end out for the end of the month or for march, honestly depends also from temperatures and work in the week end, we talked about it with a friend of mine, but we need to see how are our work schedules.

  • The most I've spent this past week was on: dinner with my friend Caludia, but honestly local is low cost infact I've spent only €12,80, then I had my normal grocery shopping buying also vegetarians and vegans food, but my purchases are been low of that I planned so hurrah for me!
  • Today I feel good towards money because: budgeting is work, side hustle income from cafe is permitting me to don't touch savings and good budget planning works well because I have always leftover money.
  • Money can't buy happiness. One free thing I did last week that make me happy was: have a skype callw ith a friend using my tablet, ok I pay for internet connection but sensations and emotions that honest talks, smile give you are without price
  • I will consider this week a success if I: I will eat vegetarian more often is possible, keep calligraphy exercises, write and send out snail mail, have my weekly real meetings with friends, keep focused on work.
  • Shopping ban is been: hard, because looking for a couple of gifts forced me toe nter in shops that I wanted avoid but I am glad to say that I resisted to temptation.

Qualche mese fa entrando in libreria ho notato un sacco di libri dedicati allo stile "felice" del Nord Europa, ho voluto sfogliare un libro Hygge, ma ammetto di NON averlo voluto comprare anche perchè è già da un pò che ho deciso di voler guardare il bicchiere mezzo pieno ed ho fatto mia la frase " un sorriso costa meno dell'elettricità ma fa altrettanta luce"  ma volendo cercare sul web alla parola mindfulness ecco cosa si trova: Mindfulness è la traduzione di "sati" che in lingua pali, il linguaggio utilizzato dal Buddha per i suoi insegnamenti, significa essenzialmente consapevolezzaattenzione, attenzione sollecita. Queste qualità dell'essere possono venire coltivate attraverso la meditazione. Nella tradizione buddhista la samma sati (retta consapevolezza) è una delle vie del Nobile Ottuplice Sentiero, l'ultima delle Quattro Nobili Verità. La moderna mindfulness è una tecnica psicologica basata su questa e altre tradizioni meditative. Desc…


Qest'anno ho deciso di guardarlo ma arrivo ad un certo punto ed il sonno vince però con rai replay vedo quello che mi sono persa e in alcuni casi devo dire meno male...
Iniziamo a parlare del look di Carlo Conti e la scelta migliore rispetto alla prima sera, oddio qualunque giacca scura sarebbe stata meglio di quella "da vecchio" della prima sera....comunque si inizia con le nuove proposte e lo devo dire ho una profonda invidia per i capelli di Marianne Mirage, che ha scelto un look molto bello ed elegante, la canzone è anche molto bella e secondo me avrà successo (e prima l'hanno passata in radio un paio di volte), Francesco Guasti e ok lo devo dire io ho un debole per gli uomini con la barbetta ma qui si esagera però il look non mi dispiace per niente e la mi è piaciuta, gran bel timbro vocale il ragazzo, il terzo ad esibirsi è Braschi, giovane carino con la faccia da bravo ragazzo, canzone carina ed orecchiabile ma se devo dire se mi è piaciuta o meno,…
